Since this is an important recurring question I have committed a README.txt for creating your own .conf file, have a look to see if that helps.

Hello, I got a TV: sony kdl-46ex520,
I can find "wmp server" and "ps3media server" in the TV.
I can connect to "wmp server", but can't connet "ps3media server" from TV.
occasionally, the "ps3media server" find the TV, but if reboot the "ps3media server", in the most time, it can't find the TV again.

Can you help?
thx

Check the FAQ on how to create a working .conf file for your TV.

Has anyone tested this feature with builtin streaming clients of TVs like Sony Bravia or Samsung? I'd like to buy a new TV in near future and would be interested in using streaming capabilities of the new TVs. Maybe someone can share experience...

Here's an example for Sony Bravia 5 series. I didn't have a chance to test ist yet...

Code: Select all
#————————————————————
# ps3mediaserver profile for Sony Bravia TV
# DO NOT MODIFY THIS (OR AT YOUR OWN RISK)

#————————————————————
# General informations / detection

RendererName=Sony Bravia TV
RendererIcon=bravia.png

#UserAgent: regular expression to detect the connected renderer
UserAgentSearch=BRAVIA

#UserAgentAdditionalHeaders: additional http header for better detection
UserAgentAdditionalHeader=X-AV-Client-Info
UserAgentAdditionalHeaderSearch=BRAVIA

#Basic capabilities
# Bravia 4 Video=false, Bravia 5 Video=true
Video=true
Audio=true
Image=true

#————————————————————
# DLNA settings

#Use the DLNA feature seek by time and not by range
#SeekByTime=true
SeekByTime=false

#————————————————————
# Transcoding/Muxing capabilities
#

#Transcode codecs for video and audio engines
#currently supported: MPEGAC3 or WMV for video, PCM or MP3 for audio
TranscodeVideo=MPEGAC3
TranscodeAudio=PCM

#Use default DVD buffer size: false = greater bitrate and faster encoding,
#but can generate incompatible videos, depends of your media renderer
#DefaultVBVBufSize=false
DefaultVBVBufSize=true

#Muxing capabilities: Does the media renderer supports H264 and MPEG2 in a mpegts file ?
#MuxH264ToMpegTS=true
MuxH264ToMpegTS=false

#Does the media renderer supports DTS in a mpeg file ?
MuxDTSToMpeg=false

#Does the media renderer supports DTS wrapped into LPCM in a mpeg file ?
#WrapDTSIntoPCM=true
WrapDTSIntoPCM=false

#Does the media renderer supports LPCM in a mpeg file ?
#MuxLPCMToMpeg=true
MuxLPCMToMpeg=false

#Maximum bitrate supported by the media renderer (0=unlimited)
MaxVideoBitrateMbps=0

#Max Width and Height supported by the media renderer (0=unlimited)
MaxVideoWidth=0
MaxVideoHeight=0

#————————————————————
# Misc Files

# Mime types transforms (oldmime=newmime|olemime2=newmime2|…)
#MimeTypeChanges=video/avi=video/x-divx

# Extensions management: no need to put something here, as the server’s default configuration is tuned for ps3
# What extensions are forcefully transcoded
TranscodeExtensions=wav,mpg,mpeg,mpe,ts,tp,m2t,m2ts,m2p,mts,vob,gif,tif,tiff,png,bmp,wma,mkv,hdmov,hdm,flac,fla,dts,ogg,asf,asx,m2v
# What extensions are forcefully streamd as is (and not transcoded)
StreamExtensions=

One has to create a bravia.png picture to make it perfect ;)

In debug.log one can find the name of a streaming client in ordner to make a custom *.conf file, e.g.:
Code: Select all
X-AV-Client-Info: av=5.0; cn="Sony Corporation"; mn="BRAVIA KDL-40W4500/47  "; mv="1.7";
X-AV-Client-Info: av=5.0; cn="Sony Corporation"; mn="BRAVIA KDL-37V5500     "; mv="1.7";


It would be nice to get some feedback regarding PMS with other streaming clients than PS3, XBOX360 and Popcornhour.

Hello together,
i want to buy a new TV with 3D and 55 inch Picture in the next Time. I want to Stream mkv's (AVC and AC3 or DTS), avi's and DivX. Now i have two Questions:
1. Which Brand of TV is the best for DLNA Streaming with PS3 Media Server? (Philips, Samsung, LG, Sony...?)
2. Does the "Movie Info Plugin" work too with TV's or only with the PS3? I think this Plugin is great and it would be cool if it works!
Thank you very much and sorry about my bad English!
